Each year I rank the best and worst among the top 14 seeds. Let’s check and see how I did.
14 seed Best: North Dakota State Worst: American
I was right on about Ben Woodside and his team. All of the other 3 were pretty much weak.
13 seed Best: Cleveland State Worst: Portland St. (Wake Forest is the highest seed who might….)
Uh, did you hear about Cleveland State? Did you read what I wrote? My old college rhetoric Teacher, Esquire’s Scott Raab, I’m sure is jerking off as we speak. (Major CSU fan.) Portland State was the worst.
12 seed Best: Wisconsin Worst: Northern Iowa (only UNI is the only 12 seed with no chance.)
Jesus F. Christ am I good. Well, UNI was competitive, so I didn’t get that perfect.
11 seed Best: VCU Worst: Temple (The 12 seeds are better as a group than the 11’s.)
Dayton was the best, but VCU had their chance. Actually, I chose Dayton in my pool at Facebook, after reading Gregg Doyel’s touting of the Flyers. Temple was easily the worst.
10 seed Best: USC Worst: Minnesota (I actually think the 10 seed group is better than the 7’s.)
Three of the 10 seeds won, so who’s to say who was best, but I nailed the Gophers.
9 seed Best: Tennessee Worst: Siena
OK, I definitely dropped the ball here, but I will mention that the Ohio State/Siena game was a badly played game, despite going 2 overtimes.
8 seed Best: Ohio St. Worst: LSU
Now here is where I was waaaay off.
7 seed Best: Texas Worst: Boston College (BC is the most overseeded team in the tourney.)
And now I’m back on track. BC was the 2nd most overseeded team in the tourney.
6 seed Best: West Virginia Worst: Marquette (In January, Marquette was the best, WV was not.)
As I mentioned above, the one pick I changed after writing this was on Dayton. Arizona State looked to be the best 6 seed. Marquette would have gotten spanked by the Flyers.
5 seed Best: Purdue Worst: Illinois (Of the 5’s only Purdue should have been seeded this highly.)
There is only one 5 seed left, Purdue. Illinois was the most overseeded team in the tourney.
4 seed Best: Xavier Worst: Wake Forest (Both Wake and Washington have a chance of losing.)
Outside of saying that Washington might lose, I couldn’t get much more right on here.
3 seed Best: Missouri Worst: Kansas (Surprise here? It’s about match-ups, as all 4 are about equal.)
I feel good about these comments.
2 seed Best: Duke Worst: Memphis (Not much diff here, but Memphis is hurt by playing in Conference USA.)
There was only one team who struggled with at this seed, Memphis. Next.
1 seed Best: North Carolina Worst: Pittsburgh (The Panthers have a poor tourney track record.)
Only one team struggled at this seed, Pitt. If you would have taken my advice using the spread, you would have fucking banged your bookie like a muthafucker.
The best bet of the second round is Purdue getting points against Washington. Unload your wad on this one.
If you are a bummed out Ohio State fan, I implore you to check this video out. Actually, if you are a hetero man or lesbian lap-licker, go to it. Fucking hottest woman I’ve seen in awhile. Youch!
